This is the time of year when free agency is quiet and the draft excitement/disappointment has died down. This is the time when NFL fans everywhere spend their time analyzing the roster and making pointless but intriguing roster predictions. Instead of clogging up the regular threads, I created this one to let everyone discuss the rosters.
To start off...here's mine.
QB (3) Tom Brady, Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett
RB (4) Danny Woodhead, Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Spencer Larsen
WR (7) Wes Welker, Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Lloyd, Matthew Slater, Julian Edelman, Deion Branch, Donte Stallworth
TE (3) Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Daniel Fells
C (1) Dan Koppen
G (4) Dan Connolly, Brian Waters, Ryan Wendell, Robert Gallery
T (3) Sebastian Vollmer, Nate Solder, Marcus Cannon
DE (5) Brandon Deaderick, Jonathan Fanene, Jake Bequette, Trevor Scott, Chandler Jones
DT (3) Vince Wilfork, Myron Pryor, Kyle Love
ILB(4) Brandon Spikes, Dane Fletcher, Donta Hightower, Tracy White

Total players: 53
Mankins is on the PUP list.
On the Bubble: Ochocinco, Barrett, Ebner, Tarpinian, Gerard Warren
Also, I think we need another tackle. Obviously, this is going to be controversial because I have 7 WRs - but that's because Slater really is an ST player.
